BREAKING: Tennessee Tea Party Sparks Controversy Over Tweet
WZTV - Fox 17 ^ | 11/28/11

Posted on 11/28/2011 8:05:14 PM PST by SmithL

The Tennessee Tea Party is speaking out about Representative Frank tonight and their view is sparking some controversy. After hearing he's retiring, the Tennessee Tea Party tweeted "Good riddance, you perverted sodomite POS!!!"

"I am appalled," says the Tea Party Nation's Judson Phillips. "This statement does nothing to advance the goals of the Tea Party movement and goes a long way towards offending people we need to be involved. Barney Frank is the worst congressman in the last century, but dumb comments like that tweet do not help our cause."

A spokesperson with the Tennessee Tea Party told FOX17 NEWS via phone tonight "If people think we've gone too far, it's Barney Frank that's gone too far."

The Tennessee Equality Project released a statement tonight, saying "The Tennessee Equality Project condemns the comments made by the Tennessee Tea Party about Congressman Barney Frank. Name-calling and bigotry have no place in our public debates. Americans can disagree without denying one another's humanity. Attacking an accomplished public official based on sexual orientation or gender identity shows the need for an open discussion about discrimination. If adults don't set a good example, we can't expect to address issues like bullying in our schools or discrimination on the job. TEP is ready to have an adult discussion with the people of Tennessee."

In 1987, Frank became the first congressman to voluntarily admit he is a homosexual.

Ease up, you Volunteers!

Ol’ Barney just wanted to be able to spend more time with the wife and kids.

(Oh, wait a minute.)

Judson Phillips is always in surrender mode. This is the same idiot who called for a more “humane” GOP approach on immigration, and denounced SB1070. He represents NO ONE.

Judson Phillips is a leftist Tea Party infiltrator. We need to be aware of him.

"I am appalled," says the Tea Party Nation's Judson Phillips.

I am also appalled.

Just because Mr. Frank's unusual sexual procedures may sometimes involve coming in contact with POSs (plural) does not imply that he is a POS. That is not logical.

The media sure like to pretend that there is a “The TEA Party” as if there one organization.

BTW, Barney is a perverted sodomite, why is that controversial?

Twitter is a great way to shoot yourself in the foot.

REP. Frank is a horrible human being. Calling him names isn't going to help us, however.

Hey Judson. I am appalled at YOUR comment. It does nothing to advance the goals of the Tea Party movement and goes a long way towards offending conservatives we need to be involved. Barney Frank is a homosexual who allowed a male prostitution ring to be run out of his congressional offices. Calling out his sick perverted behavior that is a disgrace to our nation does help our cause. Being afraid to do it only hurts our cause.

I wondered what the Tennessee Equality Project consist of.
I did a search and found that it is a queer advocacy group.

“Americans can disagree without denying one another’s humanity.”
Barney has denied and violated his own humanity for his entire adult life.
In the process,he has offended God and at least 90 percent of the population of America.
Mr Phillips wants me to have some empathy for the old deviate?

Well Barney is a sodomite, he is a POS, I guess the insult or value judgment is “perverted”.

Ill advised, but you know, Barney Frank is a bad person. Male prostitution, growing pot on his property, shielded Fannie/ Freddie from scrutiny and caused the financial crisis, Dodd Frank is a disaster, and he’s disgustingly obnoxious to boot.

Maybe if it lapsed into four-letter words (and I don’t mean “scum” or “dolt” etc.) it would be a tweet too far. But this? It’s rough but it’s real.

Judson Phillips isn’t a tea partier. He just plays one in front of the cameras. At best, he’s a more nuanced RINO playing a tea partier.

Truly a “Piece of Scum.”

It may well be true that but for the grace of God there we go ourselves, and we should all want even Barney Frank to repent (change his mind about his sins) and be saved, but we wouldn’t want someone carrying on like he does now to occupy anything more dignified in Washington than a bathroom stall.

Wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feelings by stating fact, now would we?

What would this nation come to if people started telling the truth, and speaking their minds?

After all, all perversions are to be not only tolerated, but held up higher than any old fashioned Christian values.

Tolerance only for the left.

issues like bullying in our schools

My friend has an autistic son who is bullied in school. They've tried to get some action taken, especially in light of all the talk about anti-bullying initiatives.

I explained to him that the problem is that his autistic son isn't gay.

They don't label it as such, but the anti-bullying campaign is ONLY about gay kids. They don't give a flying crap about any hetero kids get picked on.

Bwahahahahaha ... and on another note. When I made my weekly grocery run to Wlly World today, I discovered that the street vermin (OWS by another name) pulled there stunt in our Wally World Friday, ot tired to. They were ‘escorted’ out of the sotre as they yelled obscenities and tipped over loaded carts waiting to pay at the registers. Two were arrested and a couple of fights broke out, but ended quickly as the ‘victors’ walked away leaving the street vermin on the floor.

Occasionally some school parents do try to get some steam up about “generic” bullying, reference for example the tragic suicide of the girl that got Facebook attacked at the behest of the mother of another student. But I’m not surprised to hear the focus seems primarily upon shielding gays who go out of their way to appear weird.

Name-calling and bigotry have no place in our public debates.

Right. We're supposed to just bend over and smile while a perverted sodomite POS destroys our banking system under the pretense of fairness and tolerance; while our Constitution's meaning, intent, and laws are trampled underfoot at the behest of foreign interests. Hey, Tennessee Equality Project: Screw you and the horse you rode in on. Bigotry my Barney. This is righteous anger, and you'll soom feel it from the voting booth.

What is Tea Party Nation? Another good ol' Boys wannabe group?
I never heard of this clown or this group, and I have embracd the Tea Party since its creation because it did not have a political hierarchy.

Tiny people with a giant appetite for power.
Attention whores.

I agree with the statement. What else can you say about a pervert whose boyfriend ran a gay prostitution business out of his (Fwank's) apartment?

I’d have left the POS part out of the message. It’s vulgar,crude and detracts from the simple truth that sodomy is perversion.
